I have a number of tasks in a project I'm working on that require LDAP password policy settings, like remembering password history, locking the account after x number of failures, and one is that a user must change his password after an administrator resets it.
My java code can successfully change a password if logged in as the admin (e.g. cn=root), but when I attempt to connect as the user with his credentials, I get a NoPermissionException (error code 50). Then I tried changing other attributes of that user (while logged in as the user), and I get the same NoPermissionException.
What do I need to do to make changes in my LDAP directory as the logged in user? I can't just login as the admin to make the change because then the password complexity rules aren't enforced (since the admin can do whatever he wants).
Thank you very much for your help.

I think I've decided that this is a server issue.
I've been attempting to configure the permissions so that all users have write access to their own record, and my server config claims to have this ability, but that's giving me additional problems. In any case, that's a question for a completely different forum.
